Commonly used in commercial buildings is VCT, or Vinyl Composition Tile, flooring. A very important presentation to any business, is the condition and aesthetics of the floor. As a result, VCT flooring requires regular maintenance in order to retain the shine and to preserve the quality of the floors. In addition to your efforts, routine professional cleaning, stripping and waxing is essential to manage the beauty, condition, and longevity. Bearing this mind, we at Baker Sandoval Cleaning would like to share some suggestions on your commercial VCT flooring maintenance.
Sweep & Mop Dust & Debris from VCT Floors Daily
Creating a sandpaper-like effect, the dust, dirt, and other debris is a natural abrasive substance. Add friction caused by foot traffic, and this sandpaper-like effect results in abrasions and scratches. The longer the particles linger, the higher the risk your commercial floor is danger of damage. Ensuring you get the whole floor, including corners and edges, sweep up the VCT flooring with a soft bristled broom to clear the particles. With warm water, dampen your mop to spot mop any residues or spots and immediately follow up with a dry rag. Avoid letting the moisture linger and dry out on its own.
Avoid Spots & Stains on Vinyl Composite Tile Flooring
It is vital you instantly wipe up any spills, especially any colored substances. If it does not immediately wipe clean with a damp cloth, mix up a soapy, warm water mixture to clean up the residues. Be sure to dry the area quickly.
Deep Clean & Scrub VCT Flooring
A scrubbing machine is essential to utilize for your VCT floor deep cleaning needs every 3-6 months. This will remove the buildup of grit and grime. Following the deep scrub, it is necessary to rinse the flooring and immediately dry the floor. Once dry, apply at least 3 coats of stain resistant VCT wax to protect the commercial flooring and provide a vibrant polish look.
Preventative Care & Maintenance of VCT Floors
To offer your commercial VCT floors more protection, ensure you have entry mats at the doors that feature a rubber backing. This will help contain much of the dirt and debris and help you avoid scratches, abrasions, and staining that will quickly make the floor look dull and unsightly. To prevent the color of your VCT floor from fading and discoloring, invest in window treatments like UV window film, blinds, and/or curtains on the windows.
Professional VCT Stripping & Waxing Services
Professional deep cleaning is essential for the overall condition and longevity of your VCT floors. The basic professional VCT maintenance include the following:
– Treat Edges & Corners. The corners, edges, and overall floor is thoroughly and manually scraped away to remove the old wax during the service.
